A delicious red Bordeaux Superior wine with a lot of potential. The young domain of Chateau de Garros is owned by Jean Baptiste Borie and his wife, belonging to the Rivière family from the Saint-Émilion.
They have been producing wine here for only a few years, seeing their first harvest in 2014. But it became a success rather quickly thanks to good reviews from Wine Enthusiast, among others.
The young wine is robust and full of flavor. Packed with ripe red fruit and pleasant tannins, the wine comes to a nice balance and is even a bit refreshing.
Very pleasant Bordeaux Superior suitable for many occasions. Will develop further with the coming years. Pairs perfectly with a nice piece of white meat or meat-based tapas.
